MY PROMISE

I've spent 25 years entertaining people throughout Canada and the world at almost any kind of event you can imagine.  Whether I'm working with a symphony in a concert hall or at a school in a gymnasium or outdoors at a festival...

 I've been seen live by over 1 million people around the world, had repeat invitations to Just for Laughs, sold out shows at the National Arts Centre, performed for the last 2 Governors General of Canada and once John Cleese from Monty Python said 'Hello' to me!

Wherrever I am in the world, whether on stage, in a concert hall or a theatre... in a gymnasium at a school... in a park at the festival... I will present a fantastic circus & comedy show.

About Me

MY NAME IS aytahn |   sounds like 8-On

I present circus & comedy ranging from the absurd to the amazing.  I also love listening to jazz & sipping bourbon.

I take pleasure in each day being curious about people & the world. That curiosity has meant a life of study and interest in science & the arts

 

Born Montréal Canada, he was immediately smuggled out to a cold empty place called Winnipeg where he learnt circus skills because there was nothing else to do.  Raised a steady diet of arts festivals, theatre and the desolation of the Canadian Prairies, Aytahn was destined to escape the town, the farm and ... where he was raised

Escaping back to Montréal in the 1990s to attend university and learn

 

After spending the last 20 years in Montréal, he made a name for himself in the circus industry because of his staunch refusal to wear tights or clown make-up.
